Irish Red Ale

A variation on the English Pale Ale, the Irish Red Ale leans more on the malt flavors than its English counterpart.

Ranging in color from a ruby amber to reddish copper, the Irish Red Ale gets its characteristic appearance from the inclusion of roasted barley. Malt character gives caramel, toffee and toasted malt flavors, while hop flavor and aromas are kept fairly low. A fairly dry finish, and moderately light body.

Best served cool, at 46-54 degrees, and in a pint glass or beer mug.

Traditional Irish-style ale. Deep Red/brown with a malty aroma. Light bodied, mildly sweet and clean malt flavor with just a touch of British hops trailing off to a dry and slightly roasty finish. Brewed with a combination of American and British malts and hops.

Like the nocturnal man-beast that serves as its namesake, Newcastle Werewolf has something of a split personality. Tear into a bottle or a pint and it mysteriously transforms – starting out smooth and mellow, then transforming to a bitter bite that will leave beer lovers howling for more.
